In addition to works by Remington and Russell, his collection includes paintings by other "old masters" of Western art: Oscar E. Berninghaus – a founding member of the Taos Society of Artists, Charles F. Browne, Edwin W. Deming, William Gilbert Gaul, Herbert M. Herget, Frank Tenney Johnson, William R. Leigh, Peter Moran and Charles Schreyvogel. Admission is free to the museum, which offers free tours and public education programs for children/families, teens and adults. The Museum Store has unique Western-themed items. Open daily except for major holidays.
I have a medicine show that is set in the 1880’s. It is a show for all ages with Prof.Hyrum P. Hedgethicket, a con man who sells his wares, has magic tricks that can be solved by kids, audience participation, makes it rain and gets a kiss from an unsuspecting participant at the end.
I have performed for twenty-eight years at the Chuckwagon event at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. I have also performed in Pawnee Bill’s Wild West Show (10 Years), Colorado Springs Poetry Gathering, L.A. County Fair, and many events in the state for the last thirty years.

Welcome to Eischen's Antique Bar...
the oldest bar in the state of Oklahoma! Eischen's Saloon was established in 1896 by Peter Eischen and was open until Statehood and Prohibition. Eischen's Bar opened shortly after the end of Prohibition by Nick & Jack Eischen, son and grandson of Peter Eischen.
The massive back bar, a vital part of the history of Eischen's was hand carved in Spain in the early 1800s. During the Gold Rush it was shipped to California. It was lost in time until it was brought to Okarche in 1950 for the enjoyment of all who stopped by Eischen's. On January 21, 1993, fire destroyed Eischen's and one of the things remaining is a small part of the antique back bar.

The Vintage Barn is a one of a kind shabby chic boutique that offers custom, handcrafted furniture and home décor. Local grass roots, small business owner and designer, Sherri Curtis has an amazing talent for transforming, designing and decorating!
Sherri grew up in a very modest home and worked with her grandmother as a little girl, learning very quickly how to turn other people’s furniture into beautiful treasures. Bringing life to vintage and abandoned items, turning them into beautiful pieces of work and bringing smiles to people’s faces is her passion! The Vintage Barn is a lifelong dream of hers that she is thrilled to share with people from all over!
About three years ago, Sherri and her husband turned an old salvage yard off of the historic Chisolm Trail on highway 81 into a charming country home for their family. They restored the barn on the property into a quaint shabby chic boutique filled with Sherri’s work. The Vintage Barn offers a unique local shopping experience with a comforting “at home feel” where one room of beautiful, one of a kind, reasonably priced pieces and décor seamlessly flows into the next.
Stumbling across this diamond in the ruff after moving from California to Enid, Oklahoma, Julie Matula realized the beauty of this shop and began to spread the word about this special place. Because of her deep belief in what Sherri has to offer, she began promoting The Vintage Barn through social media and was encouraged to introduce her own inspired designs to the store.
The Vintage Barn is owned and operated by two small town ladies, passionate about doing what they love to do, providing quality, one of a kind items that make other people happy!
Normal operating hours are Saturdays 10:00-4:00 and Sundays 1:00-4:00
Please call Julie (949) 943-4305 or Sherri (580) 231-0838 to make arrangements to visit during weekdays.
